The Anet A8 3D printer was very popular with the community. Meanwhile the Anet A8 is relatively outdated and the competition has long since followed. But now the 3D printer series returns with the Anet A8 Plus. Can the Anet A8 Plus continue the success of its predecessor?
The Geeetech A10 is almost identically constructed and costs about the same as the popular Creality Ender-3. Is the somewhat less known Geeetech A10 even the better 3D printer in the end?
The Creality Ender-3 now closes the “gap” between the predecessor and e.g. the Creality CR-10. Whether this really works and whether the Ender-3 is more than just a gap filler, i.e. brings some good innovations, you can read in my Creality Ender-3 test.
The very successful Anet A8 and Anet A6 (my low-budget recommendation) lost ground against the Creality CR-10 because of the bowden-extruder and the aluminium-frame. Anet anthicipates a comeback with its newest model, the Anet E10.
The Anycubic I3 MEGA 3D printer scores with a very robust construction, quick assembly and well thought-out extras such as a sensor that monitors the filament volume. On paper that sounds great, some features we haven’t tested out-of-the-box – so here is my Anycubic I3 MEGA review!

Of course many questions arise even before you start. What types of 3D printers are there? How does a 3D printer work? Which slicing software do I need (what is that anyway)? What should I pay attention to when choosing the filament, and most importantly, where can I buy a 3D printer?
We've built and tested dozens of models to date and can tell you exactly which printer is right for you. In addition, you will find information about the various 3D printer manufacturers such as Prusa, Creality and Anycubic and helpful instructions on the right slicing software. Ultimaker Cura is just one of many programs.
There are many ways to use 3D printers. Whether you want to print spare parts for household appliances, helpful small parts such as holders, covers and attachments or even miniature figures - with modern 3D printers almost everything is possible.
